Ne-Yo insists he will never marry a woman who relies on him for money and says he is sick of people who are only interested in his fame

Ne-Yo is sick of women who are only interested in him for his fame.

The 'Beautiful Monster' singer - who became a father to daughter Madilyn Grace earlier this month -will never marry a woman who relies on him for money.

He explained: "I don't want someone who's with me because she needs help paying the rent. My mum worked six jobs to make sure we never needed anything so that's the kind of woman I'll marry."

Although Monyetta Shaw gave birth to the star's daughter, Ne-Yo - whose real name is Shaffer Smith - insists she is not his girlfriend and says he has very clear ideas on the type of woman he wants to be with.

He said: "I love a woman who laughs and can make me laugh. I rarely give my number out because most women don't care who Shaffer is. If you don't care about the real me should I waste time with you?"

Ne-Yo added he wishes he had found love before he hit the big time because as he finds it hard to trust women.

He told Company magazine: "I've been caught out more times that I'm proud of. I applaud guys who found the one before fame. After the money, cars and jewellery, it's difficult to figure out who's there for you and who's there for the bank account."
